How could it be.....

                                Our first glimpse

                                 His fear is so painful

                                Home just one month. April 30

                                     Loving the outside.  May 30th

                                                Our little red raider. June 30

                                The best summer gift.  July

                                Having a sweet snack.  August 30

                                       One happy healthy boy.

That this sweet spirit came to live with us 6 months ago?

That he continues to amaze us with his love and bravery?

That he is so happy EVERYDAY? Just not all day.

That he was so wonderfully made for THIS family?

That he is so sympathtic when you cry?

That he could have such a sense of humor?

That he could love baby doll like a pro?

That he can take new challenges on with a smile?

That he can let us love him so openly?

He's soooo sweet! You really do have a beautiful son. Six months already? Wow...I am already feeling like I missed so much with Ty. I'm sure you treasure every moment, just like I do.

Your pictures from Nanjing bring back so many memories. I love seeing how our children are changing and blossoming! It seems like our time in China was so long ago already. I can hardly believe it was only six months! Someday I'm gonna make my way to Texas and squeeze those cheeks:) Well, by then Kevin might be too big to let me squeeze him.......

Wonderful collection of photos and sentiments! He really looks like such a sweetheart. Congratulations again!!

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
